Racist Texas cops AND POLITICIANS shoot undocumented from helicopters

That sicko clone of Dubya called Rick Perry, the current governor of Texas, is a very busy man. When he's not defunding Planned Parenthood in his home state, he has been recently up here in Colorado campaigning for Mitt Romney, under the basic theme of going backwards in order to get to the future. But he also is energetically creating a war zone in south Texas under the guise of fighting the so-called 'drug war'. That's how we get to this story: Texas trooper in chopper shoots, kills 2 suspected illegal immigrants --in a car that might very well have been carrying children. The Republican meatheaded Anglo racist 'policing' lot just don't care when it comes to the killing of others, when they have Brown and Black skin! (That's Rick Perry stepping from a 'Texas Department of Public Safety' people-killer helicopter.)

About Republican idiocy on health care policies? -Texas politician Rick Perry leads the way

'Gov. Rick Perry, who is vocally opposed to the (Obama health care) law, says the state can "deliver health care more efficiently, more effectively and cheaper than the federal government can." That's great, Rick, but you are a liar, now aren't you. Your state, Texas, which is where I am from, actually has the highest percentage of its population of any of the 50 states who remain without any health care coverage. So you are a liar! See A look at the health care law in all 50 states As bad as Obama's law is, it at least gives lip service to the reality of their being a major problem here. None of the Republicans will do even that, and together the 2 corporate political parties just don't seem to give much a damn about the actual health of the US people. To have good health, one must be able to access the medical system. Many in the US have extreme difficulties in doing that. How long will The People have to endure the 2 capitalist parties playing games with themselves on this issue?

Good riddance, Rick Perry

Just one week after defending the actions of US soldiers who were pissing on corpses of Afghans and laughing about it and filming it, Rick Perry has had to withdraw from the race to get the Republican nomination for President. Perry defends Marines accused of urinating on corpses Good riddance, Rick. It would be nice if the state of Texas would get rid of you, too.

Nineteen years

That's how long it's been. I fell, at work, on this date 19 years ago. Broke the talus, cuboid, and fourth metatarsal on the right foot and dislocated the foot (it looked like Joe Theissman's ankle when the Cowboys got him)(and then lost the game with zero points anyway) and my left tibial plateau. (man I was messed up from the pain last night, I had his name written as Jes) As horrendous as that damage was, it could actually have been treated. They patched the bones together into more or less anatomical position then told me the screws and plate they used would be taken out in two years, and with therapy I would make a good recovery. The pendejo who had the bright idea of saving money by not buyng a second ladder for the second jobsite, and instead taking the ladder to one site and leaving us to walk up and down a conveyor belt like a ramp, promised he would make it right on the medical care. Well, danged if that ol' boy didn't just sell his company to his brother and skip state so as not to pay me a damn thing. The Mega-Rich excusez moi Tera Rich (Halliburton who have done more than a trillion dollars worth of business) who rented me out like a piece of equipment to the aforementioned Pendejo dissolved the subsidiary who had directly paid me 1/6th of what the customers paid for my labor. Kind of an 82% payroll tax paid directly to the employer for the privilege of lining their pockets. They dissolved that subsidiary because they were cheating the workers and the government. And the customers but they've done that since forever. And since most of the customers ARE the government, well... Neat little scam where they deducted our income and Social Security taxes then never paid them to the relevant agencies nor did they report them. They bilked the taxpayers for millions and none of their Board of Directors ever spent an hour in jail. One law for the Rich and another, harsher law for those of us who made them rich. So no insurance, no workmans compensation, no job and no way to work for the next 5 years and, no medical treatment. I went back to work, when I THOUGHT it was well enough to do so, because that's what Workers do. You know the ones, those of us the Rich say are "leeches" and "parasites". Even at work, because the job I got was Highway Cleanup, the Rich Bitches in their SUVs would roll past us and throw their trash out the window right where we had just cleaned, tell their retarded little Piglets that we were "Bums" and yell at us to "get a job". Meanwhile the right talus and the (so I thought) uninjured left talus were decaying in my feet. It was more than 14 years after the accident that I was approved for SSI and Medicaid and could get meaningful treatment for the feet. Way too

The headline reads “Perry linked to KKK – Shocking secrets!”

But it was on the National Enquirer. Granted, they have far more journalistic integrity and standards than FOX but, still, they have the reputation now as a gossip paper obsessed with which celebrities have the best dressed children and such. And their past reputation hasn't quite worn off either, the "I saw Elvis in a UFO" type of paper. I don't know if he's directly a member of The Klan, what would surprise me on that count is that he would have the necessary taste for personal violence they require. Where he has the status and reputation of being a ChickenHawk like Bush. That the Republican party is the "drug of choice" for Klan members is hardly a secret. The ones who left the Democratic Party en masse first when Truman signed the order de-segregating the Army and those who were still not convinced that overt racism was becoming Tabu in the DP. Until Johnson signed Civil Rights acts. Their official motto is "I didn't leave the Democrats, the Democratic Party left ME!" Strangely, the Republican Party, which mumbled a harsh tsk-tsk'ing to the Klan on some occasions, welcomed into their party a huge group of former Dixiecrats whose reason for leaving was that Blacks were recognized as actual people with actual rights. A very embittered and ignorant crowd. One of the biggest and best funded groups of those racist pricks is The Heritage Foundation. One of our favorite Tar Baby Doug Lamborn's extracurricular activities is writing as a guest blogger for The Foundry, a Heritage Foundation weblog. It's no secret and never was. Likewise with Perry, ...and likewise the Heritage Foundation having a huge web of links to the Ku Klux Klan and other hate groups. Needless to say they also vote a straight R ticket. They still refer to boxer Muhammad Ali as "Cassius Clay". Their official motto starts off with "I didn't leave" but their unofficial motto starts, ends and is filled through the middle with some truly racist profanity. They're not very fond of educated white folks either.

Capital = Job creation, as explained by CenturyLink formerly Qwest formerly SW Bell

and somewhere in there a brief fantasy relationship with Yahoo as an internet service provider and a general screwing to the taxpayers of the City of Irving and Dallas county being thrown in... but I once more digress. CenturyLink "absorbed" Qwest's facilities, employees and corporate debts in a process called merger where all duplicated or "redundant" jobs on both sides of the merger were downsized. Meaning XXX number of real people lost their tech and service sector jobs. That's the way it looks on any prospectus of any merged corporations, in order to convince people to invest more capital in those corporations. In reality the jobs created would be debt collectors and repossession crews and foreclosure agents. BUT that's what they tell the Money People. Those of us who are in the Peasant Majority are told that we should welcome CenturyLink along with the massive tax breaks given on top of the ones they already enjoyed PLUS extras for "Job Creation" in our communities... we're told that these massive layoffs is somehow an opportunity for those "downsized" out of having a living wage job to get a job with a company who has just laid off about 20 percent of their workforce by eliminating redundant positions. Firing people in other words. But "job creation" is their story, and they're stickin' to it. So when you hear a politician proclaim that his policies of deregulation and wage-cutting and tax breaks for the richest actually created jobs, now you know why it is that a lot of people have decided that he's just full of shit all the way up to the nose and it keeps leaking out of his mouth. Other questions for them would be, since Union Membership is under 20% of the workers now, for thirty years the right to organize, join or even mention the word "Unions" anywhere on or off the job has been slashed, safety health and environmental regulations slashed, the remaining shreds of those regulations routinely ignored, and the workers' right to legal redress of grievances limited under "Tort Reform" plus the lowest tax rate since the last Great Depression, hasn't created any "new jobs" for us even though the Corporations have had their way granted to them on a silver charger for 3 straight decades. But you'll only get half of the first part of the question asked when the TeaBag and RepubliKlan Morons shout you down.

Texas Gov. Rick GoodHair getting yet another job-creating Federal Bailout

38 new jobs but, like most of the "new jobs" of the "Texas Miracle" these are Federal "nanny state bailout" jobs which, like the other "new federal jobs" created, are pre-filled with existing out of state workers. And hopefully will be only temporary. Two C130 cargo planes w/ crews, air and ground, to fight the wildfires created by Rick Perry and the other Bozo governors who have spent the past decade and a half denying that their Oil Company Corporate Owners, the ones whose rectums every governor of Texas has inhabited since the early 1920s, were causing massive climate change. So Texas has the record for hottest summer of any state. That would include Arizona. Texas always held the record for Moron Governors. (Utah holds the record for Mormon Governors but that's a different story) And Perry Keeps The Tradition Alive Not that people deserve to be punished for the accumulated wealth and associated blood-guilt of a very few wealthy. Most of the people in Texas are good people like every other place on Earth. See, I can do that shit with the pat on the head for the "good" members of any minority whose leaders piss off the establishment. Eat it and smile, George Wallace.

Problems Per Perry’s Precipitation Petition? Perhaps…

There's a failsafe in the rainmaker/faith healer scam that lets the thief off the ol' hook so that either way he gets paid. If the sufferer is healed, even if say, he was "laid hands on" on the 6th day of a 7 day cold and was much better the next day, like that, then the scamster wins. Takes the money and splits. If the sufferer dies, or just doesn't get better, the sufferer himself is to blame for not having enough faith. Scamster still gets paid. Same with the rainmaking game, you get paid if you "make" rain or if the "doubters in the audience prevented it". So what happens when you get more than you expected? There's a pretty widespread tropical storm in the Gulf right now, hitting Lousy Anna with a projected two feet of rainfall. All the low pressure is drawing high pressure down from the north and west in a pretty snappy cold front. At noon Dallas time the temperature was 86. That's a full 20 degrees lower than they were getting all summer. All measurements non-metric, though, because Americans have sabotaged the Public Education in many ways including rejection of the Metric System as being "socialism". They still depend on it without once knowing what the freak they're using to keep their cars running, their computers computing, their phones phoning, even the barbecue grills are designed by people using Metric then converting back to SAE. But the cooler weather and even, dare I say RAIN, while good for Texas and Texans, doesn't match the exact specifications Perry's preposterous pirate partners proposed. Seems that God, in answering the prayers literally, has effectively shut down 60% of the petroleum extraction operations in the Gulf. How? By causing worries that Katrina might repeat. It wasn't the hurricane which did the worst damage, it was (at the time) 25 YEARS of Republican neglect of the levees which collapsed under the extra weight from the extra water. Seems the oil "recovery" (as though Exxon-Mobil, BP, Shell, Texaco etc merely misplaced the oil under the ocean the way they misplaced "THEIR" oil under the sands of Iraq) requires on-shore coordination that, withdrawn in an evacuation, cuts production more drastically than any moratorium could have. So what are the Lying Thief Bastards at the "Americans For Prosperity" going to blame the next gas price spike on? They're making a pretense of piety so they can't very well blame God. Are they going to say that President Obama has full control over the weather? If he were that powerful, and unstoppable, how could they really rally votes and most important (they are thieves, remember) donations for their cause? They can't blame SUVs and other luxury "status symbols" for people who have no Status and Penis Extensions for people who have tiny di..... No, they have to blame somebody who isn't putting money in their greedy bloody hands. One person in a car made for eight, multiplied millions of times every day, that couldn't possibly upset the ol' Supply and Demand equation

Vote for Me, or Pogo gets it between the eyes…

In another episode of the RNC deliberately throwing the 2012 elections, Bush administrations pointing fingers at each other over the Katrina non-handling. Instead of blaming everybody but themselves. Rick GoodHair told the VFW that he would send more Working Class people into harms way with pre-emptive strikes against anybody who is profiled as MAYBE becoming a terrorist threat sometime in the vague future. AND, Bachmann came out in favor of drilling for oil in the Everglades. So it's not exactly Okefenokee, the place where Pogo lived. Through the medium of a cartoon of course.

Self-contradictory positions taken by TeaBag and Radical Republicans

The list is massive, their own anti-American Terrorist threats in relation to voting rights, civil rights, racism, hate-speech against Muslims, hate-speech inspired attacks against Muslims and other religious, racial, social, or cultural groups and individuals... Oh, and the constant use of Massive Conspiracy theories of their own to denounce "conspiracy theories" like the questions raised over RepubliKlan and TeaBags rigging either the initial attacks on 9/11 directly, rigging the public response to those attacks for the profit of their Warmongering Corporate Leaders, and D) All of the Above. Let's jump right in with Voting Rights, in Houston, one of the major cities in the Exxon Protectorate Territory of Texas. According to TeaBag-RepubliKlan legend, so "Red" that only Massive Commie Infiltration could have thwarted their machinations. A group called True the Vote is insisting that the 70 million to 48 million vote spanking they took in the last election wasn't an adverse reaction to Race Baiting on the part of their Terrorist Candidates McCain, Palin and others further down the ticket all the way to elections for Dogcatcher. OK so the dogcatcher election is an old hyperbole, maybe City Council would be more appropriate. AND they're calling for Armed Poll Watchers... Millions of Armed Poll Watchers. Which was IS Klan terrorism technique used to skew elections. Particularly elections for such positions as County Clerk and Recorder, or similarly positioned Election Oversight officials in different jurisdictions. Like the ones the Right Wing Hate Freaks controlled in so much of the nation 2 years ago that they were confident of cruising to victory with plenty to spare. But with a Republican Machine that rivals the Soviet system in reach and the Tammany Hall Machine in tactics, in place nationwide, there's a 22 MILLION vote difference + another 5 million or so they thought would give them an easy victory. So they come up with a Conspiracy Theory that's an order of magnitude more convoluted than the JFK Assassination theories and 9/11 theories and the whole "I saw Elvis in a UFO" range of theories combined. While alternately condemning as treason or mocking as trivial and irrelevant any questions of just how much political and financial advantage their Parent Corporations gained by the 9/11 attacks. Which is it, TeaBags, (local shout out to Michelle Malkin, Dan Maes, Tancredo, Gunny Bob) Treason, or insignificant rants of lunatics? Cause, cousins, y'all seem to have a Nationwide Lock on Loonie. Seriously. Then they spin that into their Mosque Mania and terroristic Hate Speech and Hate Actions against Muslims and anybody else they think of as being Not White or Christian Enough To Be Considered Real Americans, according to their Hate Speech Real Loonie Leader Sarah Palin. Their level of Violent Hatred has already caused American Deaths directly within the confines of the United States, attacks on Religious and Cultural Institutions such as the Murfreesboro Islamic Cultural Center torched in Tennessee last week, The Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church attacked at the urging of TeaBag Leaders at FOX Networks and Clear Channel, with two dead, the

Hysterical Revisionist Virginia Tea Party attempts another test of Anti-Smart Bomb Strategy, EPIC FAIL!

As we approach the Sesquicentennial (150 years) of the Civil War (massive contradiction in terms) the Commonwealth of Virginia attempted to pass off a "Confederate History Month" with no mention whatsodamnever of slavery. Even with decades of attempting to show that display of the Confederate Southern Cross battle flag (not an official confederate national flag, incidentally) is somehow not a symbol of Racism.   (These colors don't run... A God-Damn thing.) The slogan "Not Hate - Heritage!!" is on posters, tee-shirts, bumper stickers, pasted onto Bibles, whatever and wherever. Pure Chumba-Wumba. "Sure, we don't hate us no Nigras, we just feel y'all are so inferior to us that we can deprive you of liberty directly from birth, just on account of the color of your skin" Due to the institutionalized "right" for the slave "owners" to RAPE any one of the slaves they wished at any time, unless a Black American is a recent immigrant from Africa, he's got Confederate heritage too. They've been teaching, for generations, that the Confederacy wasn't about Slavery, that it was "States' Rights"... Meaning, the state has the right to spend Public Money, and use State police and court powers, to the direct benefit of Private Corporations who systematically denied Liberty to Human Beings, based on the color of their skin. And they're STILL trying to push off this Racist Lie as being real. It has a double edge to it, first the Rich Bastards who would profit from another civil war, or think they would, believe that Black and Hispanic and Indian Southerners will be STUPID enough to ignore the history, much of it very recent, of Racism openly displayed alongside the Confederate battle flag. They also believe that WHITE Southerners will be retarded enough to believe it, so, y'all rednecks, guess what? The slavery cartel think YOU are stupid too. Now, here's the fun part. The Governor of Virginia, and the Governor of Texas, both have loudly threatened to secede over the pure Arrogance of a Black man bucking THEIR system and actually being elected President. They deny it, but then, they deny that Slavery was the reason for secession and for the Confederacy and for the Civil War. To use a Jewish saying, they're pissing on our collective leg and saying that it's rain. But the Citizens of the Commonwealth, a HUGE bloc of voters, who voted in the 70 MILLION voter bloc who rejected the Racist Regime of Bush and his annointed replacement Sarah Failin' and John McInsane... forced the newly elected governor (the one who is supposedly a rejection of the Black President by the same voters) to concede on this. So, will Texas, and Virginia, and Tennessee, etc.. actually Secede? Fat Chance. The last time Texas seceded the black and hispanic and Native American Indians didn't have the vote, were forbidden by law to own firearms, and the Blacks were forbidden under pain of well, PAIN to learn to read, and the death penalty for anybody who TAUGHT slaves to read. They continued this "Not Hate" tradition

Rick Perry is Dubya’s Sarah Palin

Texas State politics is heating up again after years of Governor Rick Perry biding his time in the shadows of the ex-President. George W. Bush was Texas governor before he put Rick Perry in line for the office, but now in the storm of reactionary nonsense flying out from Right Wing circles, Perry has become a Superstar in his own right just like McCain's Sarah Palin. Jim Hightower asks, What's Up With the Governor of Texas? I can answer that one quickly enough having lived in Texas during his reign. He's basically just another Right Wing Texas asshole who thinks that most of his state's population are sub-human nobodies, unlike his buddies in the Texas business class circles who he is typical and representative of in his opinions and outlook. The Texas business class has always hated and held contempt for the common people that they are supposed to be representing. Rick Perry is now their Superstar in this regard.

Why is Dale Barlow free?

Why is Dale Barlow free? He is the guy accused of sex with a minor. The total of kids taken into custody in Eldorado, Texas now stands at 417, yet Dale Barlow is free! Does that make any sense? Apparently to Republican Judge Barbara Walther, Republican Governor Rick Perry, and Republican President George 'Dummie' Bush, it does. Remember? These are the people that made torture legal under national law, even if it's not considered so in international courts. We got some real legal geniuses at work here! Now don't we though? Still waiting for the national outcry as I am.... ? Apparently we are into the longest night and people are still sleeping....? One really must be kind of contemptuous of the American people as a whole at this point. Just what does it take to wake them up? Here is the latest info about Dale Barlow, who apparently is still not under custody living in Arizona. taken from the Houston Chronicle at 7PM MT 4/8/2008 ....Still missing is the 16-year-old whose phone call complaining of having an 8-month-old baby fathered by a 50-year-old man sparked the massive raid. The alleged father, identified by a search warrant as Dale Barlow, has been interviewed by deputies with the Mohave County Sheriff's Office at his northwest Arizona home, department spokeswoman Trish Carter confirmed on Monday. Carter would not elaborate on the encounter, but, according to the Salt Lake Tribune, deputies collected a sample of Barlow's DNA and a list of people living at his house. "'At this time, our contact with Mr. Barlow is complete," Carter said. "We have not been informed of a warrant or any more information being sought."......... Well, isn't that sweet? They have no evidence of anything yet! They cannot even make the arrest of the principle person accused of the only alleged crime! And, it seems, he's not even living in the state where the judge took actions involving hundreds upon hundreds of people! They have not located the alleged victim either! This is certainly our legal and law enforcement systems at their finest, is it not? You might want to telephone the Republican Judge who put 417 kids into foster control, and ask her, 'Where did you study law?' Honorable Barbara L. Walther (R) State District Judge (Irion) Term Ends: 12-31-2008 District: 51 Contact and Phone Numbers (915) 659-6571

Police state runs amok in Eldorado Texas

Let's face it, Republican US President, George W. Bush, and Republican Texas State Governor, Rick Perry, are simply in total cahoots in coordinating the incredible police state witch hunt going on in Eldorado, Texas. The US police state is running amok and this is a test case for how much the government can get away with in denying US citizens their constitutional rights. And where are the damn Democrats? I thought that these great leaders were grand protectors of civil rights? Is everybody just going to remain totally silent and complicit with this government child abuse and disregard of all citizen rights? Right now, it certainly appears so, doesn't it? This is a test case, and the report card for all so far, is FFF. Make that F- PLUS. The number of kids removed from the Eldorado, Texas religious compound is now over 400, with 133 women taken away, too, as if they were mere children. This is the federal police state and their local henchmen posing themselves as grand and noble knights on white horses, saving the maidens and the children from bad men folk, we are all to suppose? Not hardly. And yet, nobody has been charged with any real crime! Talk about going fishing Texas sized. This is Dick Cheney out fishing! Feel that hook in America's heart? What is to be established here? That the federal government and/ or local and state governments can treat ordinary US citizens as if they were Afghan civilians in a war zone? Bombs away? What happened to due process of civilian law? We are now all presumed guilty until; we are proven innocent by government authorities, who meantime can do anything they want with our kids, our families, and everybody? Cooperate, or else! So? Under normal law in a non-police state, if the police has charges against somebody, they arrest that person and charge them with a crime. They don't go out and throw the lives of around 600 people into total turmoil, including traumatizing small kids. This America we have now is shameful and disgusting. It takes the complicity and apathy of all of us to allow this charade to continue as it is. Shame on the Democrats for not speaking out! Shame on them! And shame on all of us for simply tolerating the abuse of our fellow citizens by police thugs.
